Utah teen Kaziah Daum is getting a lot of hate for her choice of prom dress... The high schooler wore a traditional Chinese cheongsam that she found in a local vintage shop but after she posted photos on Twitter she was flooded with tweets accusing her of cultural appropriation. The cheongsam is an evolution of the qipao, a Chinese dress dating back to the Han Dynasty but Keziah isn't Chinese. She simply liked the dress and has an "appreciation and admiration for other cultures". That explanation didn't go over well with the internet - some people even accused her of being a racist. Regardless, Kaziah isn't deleting the post because of a few cyberbullies.
I love and appreciate diversity and other cultures. I mean no hate. I love everyone ❤️— Keziah (@daumkeziah) April 29, 2018
